I am a primary elementary school teacher with 22 years experience and a passion for integrating technology throughout the curriculum.  I have taught in grades Kindergarten through 2nd grade.  My latest passion is using the design process with primary students to help develop 21st century skills.  I enjoy sharing my experiences on the use of STEM, robotics, computer science and much more to engage young minds and make teaching and learning fun!

When I am not busy in the classroom, I enjoy collaborating and working with educators.  I am a Google Certified Trainer.  I like to provide meaningful hands-on professional development trainings, in a slow paced and patient environment.  My training topics range from introducing primary elementary educators to the basics of Google Apps , to the innovative and creative ways that Google Apps For Education can be used to enhance the quality of their classroom instruction. My goal is for everyone to walk away feeling inspired, empowered and ready to use what they’ve learned.
